Biography

Craig Smajstrla (pronounced: Suh-ma-struh-luh) (born June 19, 1962 in Houston, Texas) was a Major League Baseball player with the Houston Astros baseball club in 1988. A native of the Houston area, he only had three at-bats in his entire big league career and never recorded a hit or walk, but did reach base several times as a pinch runner. He tied a record set by many that have appeared in the Majors and yet never recorded a hit. His Astros record was broken in 1990 when Jeff Baldwin went 0 for 7 in his career. Smajstrla was nicknamed "Mr. Buy A Vowel" by Astros broadcaster Milo Hamilton. He was one of only three Houston natives on the '88 Astros roster (the others were Craig Reynolds and Steve Henderson).
